The head of Nigeria’s police has dissolved its Special Anti-Robbery Squad with immediate effect on Sunday 11th Oct., a police statement said.
This was prompted by days of #ENDSARS protests across the country against alleged brutality by the controversial unit.
The protests broke out after a video circulated last week allegedly showing members of the unit – known as SARS – shooting dead a man in Delta state. It also prompted a globally-trending social media campaign to abolish the squad.
The #ENDSARS protest has been engineered by loads of celebrities and public figures in the country and world over.
International footballers Marcus Rashford and Mesut Ozil had also shown their support in the #ENDSARS agitation.
